Bits & Bobs: The “I’m Really Behind” Edition

24 Jul

Sorry I couldn’t post last night.  Something major that I had to deal with came up and I had to take care of it right away. By the time I finished doing that, I just conked out.  I’ve been pretty busy today as well. Please accept these half naked pictures of Sergio as my apology.

Meanwhile Cesc was, erm, busy in Menorca. Justanotherrealmadridfan sent a link to this Daily Mail story where it looks like Cesc is getting rather frisky with Daniella. Looks like they chose the most damning pictures. Here’s a few others that I found and Daniella’s son is in one of them so hopefully that was just worse than it looked.

Speaking of potentially unsavory encounters, our pals over at Crinkly Ears (your one stop Mesut shop!) have compiled some more pictures of Mesut living it up in Vegas. My favorite being the first where Mesut seems to be trying to knock El Pirata off his hipster perch. Good luck with that one, boo. You’ve got your work cut out for you.

:;sighs:: Oh honey. Whatever. I can’t say anything. I was 23 once too and I lived it up PLENTY. Just be safe.

Marcelo looks like he’s having a fantastic time at the Olympics. He posted a bunch of pictures with his teammates and other Olympians.

But he also posted pictures of his telenovela which he has obviously been keeping up on and his beloved Enzo.

That telenovela looks crazy! I have no idea what’s going on but all these screenshots he posts are cracking me up. I’m inventing my own storyline and as you can imagine, it’s pretty insane.

Arbeloa has finished The Hunger Games trilogy and is on to another George R.R. Martin book. He also put down the books long enough to hang with friends.

My little Arsenal Muppet Baby Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain posted a couple of poolside piccies and I had to share. Love this kid.

Romina said she was doing a “Thelma & Louise” with her friend. Hopefully, she’s not talking about the ending of the movie. Guti would be sad.

And the adorable newlyweds Andres Iniesta and Anna Ortiz are still honeymooning in Cancun. Iniesta just doesn’t tan, does he?

Olympic goalkeeper and all around hottie Hope Solo is releasing a book!

Actually looks like a good read. You can find out more about it here.

Nando joined up with his team in Philly, making me bitchface because I was denied both him and Zlatan on Sunday. Is that a new haircut I see, young man? Either way, he’s back to practice.





And what about the transfer market? Well, Kaka and his dad (who is his agent) met with Mou yesterday and guess what? He’s not playing today in the match against Oviedo. What does it all mean?

One thing that did cheer me up was finding out that Tim Cahill is coming the the New York Red Bulls!

Mmmm, Tim Cahill! There’s much more, but one last thing I have to say is that today is the birthday of my legendary partner in crime, Shiggers! Join me in wishing her a wonderful day. Have a great birthday, girl! And always remember this:

    Happy birthday Shiggers! Hope your day rocks.

    Even though that I knew that Kaka was on his way out…. I’m still so sad about it. Part of me keeps going nooooooooo. 😦

      Turn that frown upside down! Kaka leaving is the best birthday present ever! 🙂

      (Well, I think so, anyway, but I’m sorry you’re upset. Thanks for the birthday wishes!)

      • jellyace July 25, 2012 at 1:43 pm #

        You know I love Kaka, Shiggers, but if he moves to Milan, than he will be happy and you will be happy. So everybody wins. Wishing you all the best on your birthday! Hugs!

    If you wanted to know what was happening in telenovela I can tell you ^^ But probably you would prefer your storyline 😀

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 24, 2012 at 2:10 pm #

      It Is it as wacky as I think it could be? Dying to know. 🙂

        About the telenovela: the couple in 1st screencap was married and divorced. They were in a family holiday (and they both took their new relationships) and all were walking into the woods to a waterfall. But the ex-couple got lost and after a silly argument they just kissed and had sex. That cap was just after it when they composed themselves saying: “it won’t happened again. just a moment…”

        The second screencap is he with his new girlfriend in a family dinner. I don’t remember how, but he managed to pass a note to his ex-wife asking her to meet him in the kitchen’s storeroom later after everybody else slept.

        and in the 3rd screencap is what happened when they met in the storeroom LOL

    cool! sergio have a Hamsa necklace! I have something similar 🙂

    By the way, great blog! I can’t study to my finals thanks to you!

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 24, 2012 at 3:34 pm #

      Good eye! I didn’t even notice the necklace. I have a Hamsa on my key chain. 🙂 I’m so glad you’re enjoying the blog! But sorry we’re keeping you from studying. We’ll be here for all your study breaks, we promise. Now go hit those books! 🙂

    Seriously, its like Sergio sets the bar for hotness and totally shatters it right after just for fun! Maybe that’s what Nando has been trying to do with his little pornstache. I hope he shaves it soon! 🙂

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 24, 2012 at 10:48 pm #

      Yeah, that pornstache is terrifying. Not to mention the new haircut. He’s looks like the uber-twink with those frosted highlights.

    Thanks, Lozil, for providing birthday distraction! You’re the best, and I agree entirely with the sign.

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 24, 2012 at 10:46 pm #

      It is Sami! 🙂 Thanks for all your kind words on the blog.:-) It was hard as hell to work full time, do grad school full time and the blog. And Maisougio was doing full time school and blog as well. But we love it and it’s our happy place, so it just means a bit less sleep for us. It’s worth it though. We’re both finished with school now, so that definitely helps! Good luck in grad school – it’s a struggle but ultimately worth it. What are you going for?

      Sorry about that pesky time zone thing! 🙂 You should talk to Tasha who comments here – she’s also from South Africa. I love hearing where everyone is from.

        • headbandsandheartbreak July 25, 2012 at 7:49 pm #

          Ugh – waiting on reviewers comments – not so much fun! Hopefully, everything will get tied up soon! My Masters was in Education/Learning Technologies.

    Happy Birthday Shiggers!
    I so want to hop on a plane to Miami. Sese is killing me. How much money do you think his vacay has cost so far? I’m always so curious about that. It’s gotta be 100 grand at least. You know he’s staying in swank hotels, renting yachts…

  10. tasha July 25, 2012 at 1:13 am #

  11. mygypsyspirit July 25, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

    I’m a day late… I’m sorry! Happy birthday Shiggers!

    So, I’m like the Kaka obsessed one out of my friends. I’ve been a fan of him for years and when he signed for Madrid I was ecstatic. I’m insanely torn between wanting one of my favorite players to stay at my favorite club and wanting him to move on to get back on form and get playing time. I want Madrid to have the best team possible. In an ideal world, that includes a “vintage” Kaka.

    No matter what happens, I want the Kaka saga to be over. I’m tired of the speculation 😦

  12. suzanne July 25, 2012 at 2:27 pm #

    ah! i’m late!! happy, happy belated birthday shiggers!!

  13. mygypsyspirit July 25, 2012 at 5:24 pm #

    And I forgot to add:

    Does anyone else completely forget that Thiago Silva is 28 years old? He has such a baby face! I swear he should be about 20…

  14. Miranda Jade July 25, 2012 at 11:29 pm #

    Can we get a catalog of each of Sergio’s tattoos, what they are/what they say? I’d be so for that, its unreal.

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 25, 2012 at 11:35 pm #

      Here’s a starter primer:

      Since that he’s gotten a few more. He got the world cup on the back of his leg, his parent’s names on his hands and quotes from “Invictus” on each of his sides.

      • Miranda Jade July 27, 2012 at 5:37 am #

        AHEM!? Did you just provide me with what I’ve been fantasizing about for the last two years!?
        OF COURSE someone had already started a library. Of course. I am beyond pleased right now, can’t wait to see the new one! (and by “can’t wait” I mean plead with heaven that is doesn’t blow)
